Field Skirting around

Hello!  It's a blah Sunday for most people having to go back to work tomorrow after the holiday vacation.  But not me! (sorry to rub it in....)  I'm lucky enough that I only have to work 4 days per week for my job and I chose to have Mondays off.  It has made Sundays so much more enjoyable for me this year (I used to HATE them!).  Going to work on Tuesday is much easier after having had a 3 day weekend and knowing I only have a 4-day work week.  It's even more appreciated after a 1.5 week holiday break that I don't want to end!
Today we got together with my husband's side of the family for his aunt's birthday.  We had a nice relaxing afternoon eating some yummy soup and chili, playing cards (Pass the Ace is the family favorite), and having some laughs.  I decided to wear my gold Field Skirt because I'm obsessed with it!  After constantly admiring this skirt online for several weeks, I caved in and bought it with my birthday discount before free shipping ended.  I also bought the Daisy Chain tights in wine.  SO happy that I did because these two pieces have become my new wardrobe favs!  I've worn the skirt 3 times and the tights 5 times already since getting them only 2 weeks ago.
My camera batteries were dead so I couldn't get any shots of my entire outfit today, but I thought I'd share some shots I took when I first got the skirt in the mail.  My outfit today was exactly the same except I wore my new green Rippled Ridge Henley instead of the white tank.  Please excuse the horrible lighting and mirror shots....I was (and still am once I get new batteries) practicing my outfit photo skills.  I loved this skirt so much when I first tried it on that I didn't want to take it off!!!

For those who are back to work tomorrow - hang in there!  I have a lady doctor appointment to go to, so just because I don't have to work doesn't mean it's gonna be a fun-filled day tomorrow.  Maybe I'd rather be going to work......   :/
